The Organizer Morris Holland, Owner of Outsource Design Inc., was quoted as saying:
“I am happy and excited to bring Chairmen of the Board and the Executives Band, Ms. Jody & Comedian Les Long to the Dunn Center in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. This Concert is for the community, economic growth, and Good Time Rocky Mount. The evening of November 19th is a night of legendary music, laughs, and for everyone who attends to enjoy themselves.”–
Over the years, the Chairmen of the Board were among Soul Music’s most consistent hit-makers, scoring big with “Finders Keepers,” “Chairman of the Board,” “Everything’s Tuesday,” and has become the “Kings of Beach Music” with these hits “Carolina Girls,” and “On the Beach.” Another great part of this group is the song, Patches, which appeared on the first Chairmen of the Board album and was co-written by General Johnson. The song wasn’t a hit until the famed blind guitarist Clarence Carter got his hands on it and turned it into a soul classic. Johnson received a Grammy for it.
Today, the group continues at the request of the founder, General Johnson, who wanted to keep the group’s legacy strong. After Johnson’s death in 2010, Ken Knox, a 38-year member of the group, along with Thomas Hunter, Brandon Stevens, and six musicians, has more than accomplished that vision. With their music being featured in National Commercials to The NFL Carolina Panthers featuring the group in a video, Half Time Performances, and playing their music during home games, Chairmen of the Board are still a big part of our music world today. The Chairmen of the Board has also been inducted into the Soul Music Hall of Fame.
The Concert will also feature Ms. Jody – Southern Soul-Blues Queen. Ms. Jody is Joanne Vertie Delapaz‘s stage name, born in Chicago, Illinois. She is an R&B vocalist who puts her own contemporary spin on classic Southern Soul. Ms. Jody has become a favorite in Blues and Soul circles for her witty songs that speak the truth about life and love. She will be entertaining the audience with some high-quality, mind-blowing live Southern Soul and Blues in the Concert.
The Concert will be hosted by the notable Host and Hilarious Comedian Les Long. Long will bring laughter to the Concert and will entertain the crowd to keep them exhilarated all night.
The event night will be full of entertainment, fun, comedy, and high-quality, overwhelmingly impressive live music. Get your ticket early, and let’s get ready for the big day!
